National Highways’ Esref Ulas said: “The work will keep the M62 in the safe, smooth condition that road users are accustomed to.

"We will take advantage of the traffic management in place to also renew traffic detector loops and replace any marker posts that need attention. By grouping improvements together we can minimise disruption.”

The road will be fully closed between J26 and 27, both east and westbound along with the M62-M621 clockwise link road, although not all at the same time. The road will be open to traffic during the day.

Diversions will be in place.
